Summer fragrances for autistic incel virgins (male)?
Damn the OG Kenzo is straight shit
You guys heard of Aramis. I like it
>>17635225Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Intense
>>17635221They're pretty good, I've got 1725, 1740, 1828, Ambre 114, and Noir Patchouli travel bottles. 1828 is a nice fresh citrus, the licorice note in 1725 isn't really strong which is nice, it is well blended, 1740 is a smooth amber/leather/woody scent, Ambre 114 almost has a bug spray note for a few minutes but it dies down and the drydown is nice, Noir Patchouli is...patchouli
thoughts on nasomotto?
>>17635240Fresh citrus and just patchouli doesn't sound that exciting. Is it a slightly yassified designer/classical combos core? I want something at least ELDO level of interesting.
>>17635172this nigga mad

Are you guy really only wearing one frag at a time? You're supposed to layer dummies

>>17635235Don't you mean Amistad?
>>17635262Most of them have a nice leather/amber base note, 1725 and 1828 are quite good, 1740 might be hit or miss for you but I like it. They are all different from other perfumes I have.

Who will release the next big/iconic fragance? (The likes of Aventus, Sauvage, ADG, Homme). What kind of fragance it will be? I'd say D&G will release a floriental that will be every 20 somethig fuck boys signature for the next 5 years after realese

Looking for a really powerful head turning fragrance for a woman. Something that's like a male panty dropper, one that exudes sophistication and confidence, but also sweet sensuality. Attention grabbing but comforting at the same time.What are you recommendations?
>>176352211725 is stunning. makes me feel like an abstract concept floating through space
>>17635235sorry only by perfums from brands that have a south european man in their ads
>>17635415>male panty dropperso you want femboys?
This is way better than TF TV
>>17635443no projection so to the trash
SOTD rocking The Noir 29 after the gym. Shit smells divine: the longevity is average ish. I still smell it off my neck and I’m about 5-6 hours in so if it’s for an event or date it’s perfect. Got it off Le labos sampler. Annoyed as shit that Santal 33 is in a dabber though. Might get an individual sprayer sample online of it cause I still love the scent. Also to the other anon a few threads ago asking about bergemonte 22. The performance is atrocious. (It was in the dabber but I can’t imagine spraying would have helped at all) smelt nice and piney/woody fwiw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9RcdLCJkw4fragrance for that vibe?
>>17635120I really like this. Not overpowering, long lasting, wife loves it.
>>17635171Yes, in future "Perfume" is preferred to "Fragrance".
>>17635396Get your nose on aromatics elixir or mistusoko or something, then you might understand.
>>17635436fembot just wants a boyfriend; and believes that a frag can compensate for a lack of personality >>17635415start with picrelyou're welcome
>>17635508I think just rubbing shit on your face would suffice
>>17635483>The performance is atrociousI prefer it this way. thanks anon
Tried Al-Rehab Lord last night. This one's a throwaway for me. It just smells sickly sweet and radioactive just like joop homme and is very linear. It's this unpleasant chemical honey scent that overpowers everything else in this fragrance. I feel like I've smelled it somewhere before and I seriously hope that's not it smelling like TLPH because I'd like to try that at some point too.Thankfully at $6.50 for a 6ml oil Dakar is easily worth the price I paid for both.
hello i just bought every single Zara fragrance they had in the online store, for 110 euros total lmaoi'm scamming myself but i wanted to try them>city line>days of the week time>gold/silver/night
Looking for a niche brand. They are not MCDI, but they had an inset greco-roman design plaque on the front of their bottles. Similar price range as well.
>>17635398>TF Costa Azura smells like a fucking Best BuyOne of the best citrus-woody freshies
>>17635568>>17635590i'm looking for something a bit more unique. I recently got mitsouko but it smells too dated for my liking. Might be tempted by lancome but I'm worried it'll be a bit too cloying? Any good niche recs?
>grab the Kenzo Homme edt bottle>nice grip on the hand, like the bamboo design>now spraying 20 times on body>starts floral, aquatic, sharp-fresh, no sweetness>after some minutes the pine and some dry woods come through>i'm clicking my olfactory heels in the air>later the creamy sandalwood comes through and praising it for it's greatness
>>17635634sweet? honey? i think they duped you and filled something else in there. smells like a classic soapy scent to me, no sweetness at all.>>17635662>too datedfiltered
>>17635304I layer 20 sprays of Sauvage Elixir with 20 sprays of Sauvage Elixir.
>>17635404Still Dior or Chanel, although it might take a while. The mainstream shit is currently so neutered and similar that perfumers really don't feel a need to create something unique or new anymore. Just reiterations of previously created stuff.>>17635415Checking out Chanel, Guerlain or Dior even works for women, they got some of the best releases. Other than that, my gf has been enjoying the Francesca Bianchi discovery set and will likely buy Under My Skin and she currently wears Costume National Scent Intense EdP. The latter would fit the bill perfectly.>>17635443You've said that the previous 3 threads already.>>17635634It's a TLPH clone. Honey and urinal cake is what TLPH is. If you only got the honey, get TLPH for the full experience (gotta get that urinal cake smell), or straight Kouros if you prefer piss over urinal cake.
>>17635667>honey?Bro pls. It's sweet as shit. Both tlph and kouros which it takes inspiration from are also honey frags. It's also soapy as fuck which combined with the sweetness makes it smell like the worst kind of floor cleaner. It's ridiculously sweet. Again, instantly reminded me of joop homme.

SOTD caron yataghan
>>17635404>Who will release the next big/iconic fragance?Hard to tell. Fragrances literally losing on popularity, the Jeremy hypetrain is over. More and more people are into avoiding chemicals in cosmetics. Maybe an all natural fragrance could be the next hit.But fragrances overall are a dying trend.Thinking about this, someone can theorize that Jeremy was paid to do what is he doing, because major fragrance brands saw the decline. Shady business dudes masquerading as cool people.
>>17635703Haha based scents of south jersey
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFUtDdgEYwkfragrance for that vibe?
>>17635704it's because fragrances are more and more expensive and people are poorer and poorerthe scissor is widening, everything is a luxury
Between Stronger with you and its flankers, which would be the least redundant with Spicebomb and Naxos?
>>17635396wearing something with no complexity every day is just boring
Thought of Fahrenheit Parfum?
>>17635704The state of men's perfumery is atrocious at the moment, no wonder people are losing interest.
>>17635761All of them would be redundant. Stop buying more sweet vanilla + spice fragrances.Real answer: Go to a store and find out yourself.>>17635778Yeah I thought of it once.
>>17635404no idea. it's been a long time since anything really new caught onH24 seems to not have been a hit, but it was a valiant attempt to make something different as a brand new men's releaseSauvage Elixir got some hype, so maybe we'll see an oriental fougere rebirth? the new Dior Hommes seem more like followers than trend settersI wonder what Chanel's next move will be. they were the ones creating the big trend last time (blue fragrances), so maybe they'll do it again? Bleu was released in 2010, the time is ripe
>>17635783Not really planning to buy more, but I have these already. I mainly wear Ganymede socially but like to have a variety of cheaper things for when I'm alone. Will probably just stick with the OG SWY since it feels a bit more all season.
>>17635415could go with Black Orchid if Shalimar is too old school for you. both very sensual, but also sophisticated, complex and powerful
>>17635799supersweet fruits or rose/oud/saffron comboso exiting!
>>17635788>I wonder what Chanel's next move will be. they were the ones creating the big trend last time (blue fragrances), so maybe they'll do it again? Bleu was released in 2010, the time is ripemaybe something for fall/winter because i don't ever see western men going for something other than blue in summerblue is fresh and fruity and aquatic and that's what 80% of men are drawn to: the sea, the lake, the holiday what could ever dethrone it? an EDT that smells like a city for men on the grindset?
>>17635803maybe we ran out of scents there's only so many you can mix
>>17635778it's really good. not super similar to the original EDT, but shares some DNA with it. I think it's a much better rum fragrance than Bentley Intensea little expensive but, just as the other Dior parfums, it moggs most pseudo-niche like PdM or whatever in both scent and performance, so the value isn't horrible
if you don’t like this fragrance it’s unlikely to be in your price bracket anyway
opinions on the new Fragrantica voting system?
>>17635804blue fragrances aren't really aquatics though, more like post-aquatics. I think they'll lose popularity eventually, since I've already seen Sauvage and even BdC memed on by normies a bityou can also go green for fresh fragrances or soapy or ozonic or full-on aquatic. there is a lot of choice, it doesn't have to be citrus and ambroxan
>>17635805We haven't run out, but the interest in researching new compounds is limited. Research costs money and doesn't guarantee results, so why do research as long as people still buy the current products?
>>17635810At how many thumbs down votes does it hide reviews? The censorship is the only thing that matters. I don't give a rat's ass about the balloons. Often times somebody posts "Am I the only one or does Naxos really smell like Cool Water" or some shit like that and gets a million balloons, despite obviously having a defective nose.
>>17635814>since I've already seen Sauvage and even BdC memed on by normies a bitactual average joe normie or already in the field normie?because the average man where i live barely showers, imagine actually wearing a cologne
>>17635810i don't like this sitei always end up reading the reviews and half of them are snobs and the other half retardsand you can't tell witch is witch
>>17635826If we are being honest... There is nothing really "wrong" about being a snob about perfume. It's the sort of thing that deserves a discriminating taste.
>>17635804>>17635814Resurgence of traditional aquatics like Kenzo EDTI hope
>>17635832No, we will have a return to mossy chypres now that acceptable oakmoss ingredients can be isolated.
>>17635684>Costume National Scent Intense thank you so much for the rec I will definitely check it out! Looks great :) >>17635795ty for the rec. nice to see a more affordable tom ford frag!>>17635667honestly mitsouko just smells like a musty dusty aromatics elixir, which is the perfume my dad wore his whole life. I wanted to like it but it doesn't suit me.
>>17635823more like trendy instagram fashion normiesI'm sure the average person still thinks they smell good, but once the young, hip and trend obsessed start posting about "that one indian guy who reeks of Sauvage", it signals the beginning of the endI also took one girl out for a fragrance store date and she said that "sauvage is for basic fuckboys", despite not being too well-versed in perfume at all.I have no doubt that the market will move away from the oversaturated blue fragrances sometime soon, I just wonder what the next trend will be
>>17635836>nice to see a more affordable tom ford fragyeah the pricing on his normal line is much more reasonable. I think Black Orchid is also better than the vast majority of private blends
>>17635836Your dad wore aromatics elixir? How bold...
>>17635826My bigger annoyance is that it is very normalfag in general. More still that although niche things are certainly getting reviewed by VERY different groups than best selling designers, they are rated on the same scales and looking at numbers alone tell you nothing.
>>17635838>sauvage is for basic fuckboysfrom a woman, that's a compliment i still wear AdG and i remind them of their uncles
>>17635838>but once the young, hip and trend obsessed start postingyeah but why do you care about the opinion of teens? you trying to fuck jailbait?from street tests on women in their 20s, the "classics" still reign supreme>chanel blue>sauvage>gio profumo>versace eros/homme
>>17635852None of these are close to being classic. C'mon we aim a bit higher in these threads, do keep up...
>>17635857you didn't notice the quotation marks you retard?
>>17635852>yeah but why do you care about the opinion of teens?because they are the future and their opinions reflect what the fragrance landscape will be in 5 years. besides, the girl was 23 and still identified Sauvage as "that basic fuckboy fragrance" completely unpromptedI'm sure some people in the 90s said Joop! and CK Eternity will always be the most popular, mass pleasing perfumes out there. in the 80s they said this about Drakkar Noir, in the late 2000s, about 1 Million.as hit fragrances get oversaturated, knocked off 20 times and worn by every indian taxi driver out there, they become less desirable and the market will move on to something new. it's always been like this
>>17635857wait, bleu de chanel isn't a classic blue fragrance?
>>17635865what do you think the inspiration will be? i mean, physically what place will they be inspired from? whats a place men like to be and are drawn to?maybe the smell of the peak of a mountain? but for summer?
>>17635866It will be if it isn't already, given that it has the "defined / started a trend" box checked.
ok guys, it's 30 degrees already heredoes a blue or neroli fragrance for around 20 yuropoor exist? i like the sea scent too
>>17635868could also be forests. but I don't think even blue fragrances are all that marine or aquatic, true aquatics like ADG were big a bit earlier than thatthe next trend could be more abstract for all we know. think of Baccarat Rouge 540 - very popular and trendy, yet hard to pin down for many people. all the Bisch frags people keep memeing are pretty weird and abstract toomaybe the future is abstract and "molecular"? dior Homme 2020, H24 and the popularity of Escentric Molecules could point in this direction, we'll see if this trend reaches true mass appeal
>>17635872JeP Neroli Intense is a great Neroli scent for 10$. after he smelled my bottle, my friend just bought it to replace his TF Neroli Portofino because he's almost out and they smell very similar lmao
>>17635876most people think Baccarat Rouge smells like body sweat
>>17635877>JeP Neroli Intensety friendis there something similar but with a salt scent added? or am i expecting too much for 20 euros?
Can someoelne de-autism the Kenzo homme meme already?
>>17635880Who are these "most people"? The ones buying the roughly one million clones of it? Or somebody else? I've heard now that it smells like sweat, cough syrup, medicine, disinfectant, etc. but in the end it sells like hotcakes and so do its clones.
>>17635883you would have had a chance a while ago but not with the recent price increases. JeP also offers "acqua", and although it isn't necessarily salty, you might like the marine/blue aspect of it.
>>17635883can't think of any cheap salty neroli frags. maybe you could layer it with something if you want
>>17635887well we know that popular doesn't mean goodlook at the state of entertainment a perfume just needs to be shilled on social media to become trendy, even if the people wearing it despise it
>>17635884>de-autismwhat do you mean by that?personally I don't like them much and think they smell kind of weird. Kenzo EDP smells like leather and pickles to me. my mom violently hates it lol, it does perform well at leastBI is better, might get a bottle at some point. maybe when my Terre d'Hermes runs out because they'd fit the same "versatile modern spicy woodsy frag" role in my rotation even though they don't smell particularly similar
>go on fragrantica>perfume is high rated and well liked>read reviews>everyone shitting on itevery timewhat the fuck?
now you guys gonna tell me "stronger with you" is date, cringe, dunked on by the youths and actually psyoped into being shitdespite being the most complimented by women

I tried the new Habit Rouge Privé and it smells very similar to Gucci Guilty Absolut. Lots of leather and ginger.
Which would be best ysl la nuit de l'homme for you guys? Im thinking about ordering ysl lndh blue electrique because i read in reviews that this scent is quite similar to the og one but more longer lasting
>>17636015don't buy it. stop rewarding l'oreal for killing their scents with reformulations and then releasing endless flankers of those scents, which they will also reformulate to death within two yearsjust don't do it, buy something else than "la nuit + ambroxan", it's so soulless and I can't believe people have hyped it upget eau des baux or something if you just want an easy to like yet classy sweet cardamom bomb
post the most aesthetically underrated bottle
>>17636024Tbh I like the generic glass flat squares the most like Francesca Bianchi or Allsaints. MFKs look super nice in hand as well.
>>17636024the Hermes Jardin series bottles look amazing with that gradient, it really catches the light IRL
>>17635901gigantic circlejerk. popular = bad so everything positive must be downvoted. niche but popular = good so everything negative must be downvoted. if shit gets downvoted too much, fragrantica hides it. as a result, you can easily sway the opinion in the comments/reviews of a fragrance and many large brands do so. it probably only needs like 10-15 accounts to hide a review. hiding the review doesn't change the vote of the person, though, as a result there might be a disconnect between the reviews and votes/rating for a fragrance.
>>17635936Well he's based beyond belief. When you next see him tell him one of the most important posters on the 4chan fa perfume thread said: "Respect".
>>17635946SOTD Reuzel Wood & Spice Solid Cologne. It's snice and still smells like a waxy Snicebomb Extreme, although more muted.>>17636024Probably Mercedes-Benz Le Parfum. A weighty bottle with a heavy glass bottom and a nice color gradient, a shiny copper and silver cap with leather wrapped around it, stored in a small leather cabinet. It takes the design of the entire line and then adds subtle changes to elevate it above the others.Other than that, Chopard's Malaki line with the brushed metal on the top. They look classy, a bit vintage and have the necessary haptics to back it up.

>>17635955I wanted to dislike squid initially but the drydown has me coming back to the test strip 4 days later and rethinking my opinion of it. interesting scent at the very least
>>17636111there's nothing wrong with liking aventus. I own a bottle and save it for special occasions. I'm not really sure why people think it underperforms or smells significantly worse now, and those who avoid it due to popularity also overstate how common it is in the wild. I have yet to smell it on someone else. I also avoid wearing it to the office because it projects way too much for an enclosed space.the only real crime is that the price is way higher than it needs to be -- completely taking advantage of the popularity in the community.I will say that I was underwhelmed when I first got the bottle, but after a month or so it matured (macerated?) into something completely different.
STODThe Lover's TaleFrancesca Bianci
>>17635941yeah they had better bottles in the past. it's been some time since i tried them but i'll try to remember. the smell of weather turning was alright but not very memorable. it was grassy-minty as far as i remember. "death & decay" was very interesting, super heavy dark flowers on the brisk of rotting. my personal favorite is breath of god, it's very weird and hard to describe. it's bitter, flowery, woody with a tad of non-sweet melon. fun fact: it's a mix of exhale & inhale, the parfumeur had the idea to mix the two scents during a trip to tibet, although at first exhale & inhale were meant to be polar opposites. i want to buy breath of god eventually, hoping that one day there'll be a sale. check out your nearest city if they have a store, i was surprised by how many stores they have here.i tested a bunch of their other scents and while i don't remember any specifics to tell you, they're far more interesting and sometimes daring than majority of designers, dare i say even modern cdg.
>>17636128There's actually quite a lot wrong with liking goyslop like Aventus.

>>17636128The musk with oakmoss is the magic i love Aventus for. The pineapple is fresh, not heavy sweet like how some clones interpret it. For me Aventus is the best playful old money aesthetic fragrance. Nothing comes clothes.St Giles The Tycoon is somewhat similar.>>17636178It's only wrong to buy Aventus now since it's now under Blackrocks house.
There's a note in this that I really like except I literally cannot tell which one it is. I'm going through all my samples and bottles looking for ones that share notes so I can narrow it down but I can't get it. I am mad.
>>17636278Oh I think there's quite a lot more wrong with it than that
>>17635174Finally had the chance to smell creed aventus cologne. And it literally smells like lemon pledge and nothing else. It was a complete letdown. PDM Sedley was leagues better.

Just sprayed my sample of that stuff to get an idea myself but the most noticeable one for me is leather, although not the "realistic" leather, but the kind of leather that's in e.g. Dior Homme Parfum, and something animalic in the background with honey and soapy aldehydes if I inhale deeply up close.

sorry for the repost but asked a few threads ago if anyone has tried versace versense but i lost the link. anyone ever smell it? reviews seem good
>>17636111>I love the Aventus DNA, any alternatives?Yeah a clone that smells exactly the same, L'aventure intense.
>>17636196I just remembered about Virgin Island Water by Creed. It would be perfect for a daytime cocktail. I think any Creed match right wingers with money>>17636267Polo blue is so underrated. Is the Gold Blend flanker on the sweet side? Do you like it better than the og? I read ginger is too much, but I don't trust Fragrantica reviews. The bottle looks amazing.>>17636272>inserting your politics in a fragrance threadI'm literally answering some chap who asks for a scent based in his political views, retard.>Picrel SOTD (It's 85°F here)
>>17636525200 ml big enough for you?https://fragrancebuy.ca/products/isseymiyake-man
>>17636546>Is the Gold Blend flanker on the sweet side?Similar fresh like Polo Blue, it's more fruity. The green apple is the main player in Gold blend. Imagine you mix Rasasi Hawas/Invictus Aqua with the original Polo Blue.
>>17636547this shit really last like they say it does, or is that previous formulations?
>>17636551>more fruity. The green apple is the main playerNot a safe blindbuy for me, I'm afraid. Will try to find a tester before. Thanks anon.
I need a fresh/mature summer fragrance. I have Aventus but every faggot wears it now or some shitty clone of it. Shame because I really like it. I was looking at Aqua di Parma Mediterranean range (the amalfi fig one specifically) but apparently they have very shit performance. I want something that ideally can be smelled by others, on a hot summer night. Any recs?
>>17636427Wife is actually the one who can't last. That's why I locked her up in the first place, retard.
>>17636506I really can't describe it. I'm an ESL and was never good with words anyways. It smells like cyanide to me, and not in a bad way, but I doubt anyone in here knows what that's like. I just make the cyanide association, because that's what it reminds me of. Nothing else comes to mind. It's not the leather note.
>>17636564doesn't cyanide smell like bitter almonds?actually could be a good idea for a fragrance. eau de cyanide or something
>>17636561Terre d'Hermes, 20 spraysbut unironically though, it's one of the few fresh fragrances that last well on me and it is mature. has a similar fruity and smoky contrast going on to Amogus, though it's not similar at all otherwise
>>17636541Is it better than Aventus? If no, why should someone bother?>>17636561Yeah, Aventus was hyped in the US, now every fuckboi, arab, normie discover Aventus in Europe. Horrible.Tested alot of blues, freshies etc. Most smell boring. I always come back full circle to Drakkar Noir/Dakar.Somewhat similar mossy backbone like Aventus, but more greener while still citrusy fresh.St Giles The Tycoon is a good alternative too, but more appropriate for preppy guys.
>>17636583>Is it better than Aventus? If no, why should someone bother?It lasts longer and projects better, and is cheaper.Also smells exactly the same.So why spend more?
I have a 2ml sample of Bois imperial and a full bottle of a recent batch and they don't smell the same at all. The first one smells peppery and more spicy , and the newer bottle smells more green and dry Both wonderful, but im surprised about the difference. I'm aware of the reformulation but everyone says it's exactly the same. Anyone here with a same experience?
>>17636605could be that the small sample sprayer emphasises different qualities of the scent when sprayed on skinI've had this happen with Dior Homme Parfum I think, where the bottle I got seemed more smoky and more heavy on the leather to me
I like TdH so I got a sample of H24.I wanted to like it bros, I gave it a wear on my skin but it's just horrible. It reminds me of a dry cleaners smell.
>>17636611yeah they're not very similar. should have tried Voyage instead, or DeclarationH24 seems to me like it isn't trying to smell natural or nature-reminiscent like the Ellena stuff, it's trying to be abstract and synthetic
>>17636564I'm a chemist, so I roughly remember what cyanide smells like, but it's less almond-y to me. More cherries. The closest one to that vibe is actually L'Homme Ideal EdP. The common notes between that one and Lover's Tale are the bulgarian rose and leather. I still think it might be some kind of leather, so it might be the rose/leather combination (also found in DHP). So I guess check out L'Homme Ideal EdP (and maybe DHP) to narrow it down further?There are many fragrance compounds which trigger the almond (or cherry) smell association besides cyanides, e.g. benzaldehyde or nitrobenzene. In fact, nitrobenzene was the best cherry smell I've ever smelled (and I probably shouldn't have smelled it).
>>17636607How can that be possible? A matter of maceration of evaporation of certain molecules inside the sample? The sample seems to last less on skin and be more dense, so maybe the base notes appear quicker
>>17636568Gonna wear 40 sprays of Neroli Intense so they can't say whether it's a wet wipe they're smelling or a fragrance. If these people knew where the bleed air they're breathing came from, they'd have massive headaches and severe nausea and whatever else imaginary autosuggested shit they get when the air isn't filtered 40 times.
>>17636612declaration is nice but not something i want myself to smell like
>>17636615>maybe the base notes appear quickeryeah I assume it's something like that, because the sprays are so small or something and the fragrance evaporates more qicklyit was basically the same with DHP, the sample just skipped past the smoky leather opening quicker and got to the rose and the sandalwood base ASAP
>>17636615keep in mind that sample sprayers can smell too, a bunch of my decants have a slightly fishy smell to them. fishy plastic...>>17636616douse in 4711 and drink it too. i gotta try the drink this summer
an hermes that costs like 120 dollars that isnt' a freshie has no business not lasting all fucking day. when hugo extreme has better longevity than your flagship fragrance you have a problem
I need a frag with a "cold water" accord or this summer will be my last>inb4 Cool Water
>>17636628they're all freshies though except for the old ones like Bel Ami or somethingand they don't even perform badly, except for the Eau series. but those are eau de colognes
>>17636635it's not a freshie
>>17636613> roughly remember what cyanide smells likeGenuine question...How are you still alive?
What should I buy from them?
>>17635120When I was younger I was obsessed with Adidas Deep Energy. I can never find anything like it :( I just want the adult version
>>17636640You can absolutely smell cyanide and not die. Just because it's above the detection threshold doesn't mean it's already toxic. I didn't really put my nose to it and sniffed it, but you sometimes will catch a whiff of it. In fact, I'm more worried about my total nitrobenzene exposure.
Why the fuck would anyone want to smell like ginseng? That shit smells awful
>>17635903>despite being the most complimented by womenI can't belive this thread has fallen so far it has people who regularly watch "women react to mens frags" videos on YouTube and take their conclusions to heart
I also can't belive the new spammer retard has managed to surpass the BI schizo so quickly

This is one of my favorites of all time, got an old bottle from my dad years back. It's discontinued so kinda hard to find anywhere besides on eBay, would rather just get something similar. Any recommendations? Want something for spring/summer. Dior Homme Eauhttps://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/Dior/Dior-Homme-Eau-for-Men-22860.html
because it was pretty cheap and I was ordering something else I know I like, I just blind bought L'Instant de Guerlain EDT. did I do good? I have never smelled LIDGE so I don't have to compare it to that legendary flanker.
just how similar does Ariana Grande's cloud smell to baccarat rouge? I was at the airport today and my god the smell of baccarat rouge was everywhere
>>17636753At what salary is buying TF retail reasonable? I make 160k and I'm definitely not there yet.
>>17636753Nice choice, sampled it at Sephora the other week. really beautiful scent. I was highly considering copping this but Aaron Tereance Hughes said he likes mandarino di amalfi more and they're kinda redundant. figured I should smell that one too before I make the decision.
>>17636906>>17636753should have just picked up JeP Neroli Intense. they're both clones of 4711 and they smell almost the same. even my friend who has a bottle of NP agrees.
>>17636844you could try Dior Homme Original or Givenchy Gentleman CologneDHO will be less fresh but I think it can still be pulled off year round
>>17636902Really close, but then again I've only sniffed the cap of Cloud since I only wanted to know how close to BR540 it smelled. When I was at Douglas at least two girls bought the 100mL of it while I was browsing.
>>17636583disgusting looking girl here
Can you suggest me something like NYI but without cinnamon-musk-cloves in dry down?
>>17636990No, I can't
>>17636641Yes, I go to their shop irl pretty often and the stuff they concoct is top notch
Man rasasi hawas is being hyped up by everyone so muchSnagged a bottle but it already cost 70 bucks up from 40 and it will only increase in price
>>17637057why do you buy popular npc shit? and even worse, a clone?
>>17637062It's not a clone though
It's autumn down under. Going through my NYI bottle like a motherfucker. Am I stupid if I get all of the below:Amouage - Lyric ManATH - OnyxFM - POALI also currently have oud palao
>>17637066look at afnan 9pm maybe
do fragrances actually "macerate"
>>17637068nta but bro you just suggested a sugary sweet ultra male clone after somebody who wears new york intense was looking into buying lyric man, onyx and portrait of a lady. it would be better if you stuck around for a while and closed that youtube tab with the top 10 designer clones.
>>17637077Never happened to any of my bottles. Some changed a little in smell, but none of the magic performance increases or whatever actually happened. Grand Soir apparently turns green with age, but that's about it. If you asked me, maceration is a meme and entirely brain-related (just like half of the reformulations).
>>17637083and what? you have to understand the level at which you are suggesting fragrances. you're suggesting a department store shelf filler clone to someone looking to buy a bunch of faux-niche overpriced smelly waters instead of another bottle of nyi. the disconnect is strong.
i just got the decant of rasasi hawas for himthe longevity on this is no joke holy shitunfortunately it smells like axe bodyspray though
>>17637151is it that bad? did you spray it on your skin?hows the drydown

>>17637188it's casual, but only buy it if you're okay with smelling like a very hairy middle-aged taxi driver of mysterious ethnicity
>>17637203I'm faking while learning. Thanks anon!
>>17637209kek well im not at that level yet i guess
>>17637188It smells very old school masculine and it's great for warm weather yes. It's like a cross between drakkar noir and cool water and is even cheaper than both so if that sounds appealing to you I recommend it
>>17637162mitti attar>>17637169that means it wasn't about the looks. hope it's a wakeup call for you.
>>17637237>that means it wasn't about the looks. hope it's a wakeup call for you.Ouch...
>>17636903Literally never as it's incomplete perfumery.
>>17637210with my post i was implying that GIT is a more expensive and worse version of CW. just buy CW.
>>17637289Cool Water is damn good for 20 Euros, but there is something I don't dig in the dry down. There is something kind of sweet/powdery I dislike. Le Male drydown gives me this kind of feel too. I'm thinking about some Polo Blue flanker, maybe Polo Sport, since I already own BdC.
is there any reason to dislike ombre leather?
>>17637294it smells very cheap
>>17637298Yes. You can wear a leather jacket. If you're not wearing one don't spray yourself with a pure leather frag like some retard.
>>17637298if leather gives you headaches
>>17637301sometimes i wish i was one of those big badass bikers, just use ombre leather and get woman like mad
>>17637304I feel like those men get men.
>>17637308even then, they do pull
>>17637309Pulling men is not a flex.
>>17637317for gay men it is
>>17637319We are not gay men in here.
>>17637322we are we spray stuff on ourselves to feel/smell good
>>17637323It's only gay if you choose gay fragrances like tom ford stuff.
>>17637308my gf loves ombre leather
>>17637339I might buy it, got myself a new leather jacket for summer
>>17637344like 3 days ago she said it was her favorite one she's smelled on me so far
>>17637346...did I ask?
>>17637298I like it, but I can see why some don't. too in your face with the leather, too sweet, too "synthetic", too much like car seatsI'm glad I picked up Dior Homme Parfum instead for my sweet leather fragrance though, it's definitely more complex and interesting to me, I think I'd get tired of Ombre Leather after a while
>>17637322Honey, who are "we"?
>>17637357Us people from 4chan. Who are you?
>>17637357NTA interestingly i dated a [spoiler]girl from 4chan fit explicitly[/spoiler]La nuit de lhomme will always remember me of her

>>17637350shut up nerd
Lots of hype for the Kenzo line, so I tested all three on my skin and honestly I'm not very impressedEDP is pretty good, but it seems like it'd be too heavy and sweet for summer, can anyone confirm?Intense is fine, smells like figs and aquatic notes, but there's something in there that smells medicinal, almost like camphorEDT is different from both, fairly inoffensive fresh aquatic, is this all the 90s Kenzo hype is about though? It's good but not amazing.Anyway, my gf told me EDP fit me very well so I'll wear it a few more times, but I expected better
>>17637393idk if it has that much hype, except for that one terminally online guy who can't eat salty crackers without thinking about licking feetthey're okay, but I don't really like aquatics. the EDP smells like pickles and sweaty skin to me, not in a super bad way but a little odd
>>17636990yeah I like the opening too, but there is a greenness that becomes more prominent in the dry down that I dont like
>>17637418Some people describe Intense as tropical but why? I'm not really getting itI'd love a good mineralic/aquatic frag with an oceanic, tropical vibe for this summer
>>17637439Fig Man by Carner is sort of like that, if you consider figs tropical enough
>>17637393you got astroturfed by the retard that posts here?it almost happened to me
SOTDDior Sauvage EDT just because
>>17637541Just because you have no taste?
>>17637161Yeah, sprayed it on my wrist. Not really used to specific notes yet but you can def smell the plume and warm spices. It smelled like Axe for a good bit. After 8 hours I still smell a faint of something sweet. >>17637171Fucking reminds me of a high school gym dressing room desu
